Apache
Maven is great if you have an application with a lot of third-party dependencies and don’t want each developer to keep track of where the dependency can be downloaded. It’s also a great way to make it easy for a new developer to be able to build the application. It’s less suitable for simple projects without any third-party dependencies.

If you're running a fleet of embedded devices that has a tight RAM, CPU, & power footprint, Memfault is a must-have. From managing firmware deployments to monitoring every facet of the device lifecycle and performance, this is a solution that is built with a founding team that are the absolute best in the industry. They know your chipset and OS extraordinarily well and in some cases have been able to work directly with the chip vendors to provide support for their SDKs. With Memfault's help, our chip vendor diagnosed an issue in their BLE SDK and dramatically decreased the number of crash events on our devices.

Pros
Apache
  • If you are building in the Java ecosystem, then Maven definitely has the biggest repository of artifacts needed for such projects.
  • It has a very simple to use extendable architecture. Everything is configurable through the Pom.xml file which is very simple to follow.

Cons
Apache
  • Maven provides a very rigid model that makes customization tedious and sometimes impossible. While this can make it easier to understand any given Maven build, as long as you don’t have any special requirements, it also makes it unsuitable for many automation problems.
  • Maven has few, built-in dependency scopes, which forces awkward module architectures in common scenarios like using test fixtures or code generation. There is no separation between unit and integration tests

Usability
Apache
The overall usability of Apache Maven is very good to us. We were able to incorporate it into our company's build process pretty quickly. We deployed it to multiple teams throughout the entire enterprise. We got good feedback from our developers stating that Apache Maven has simplified their build process. It also allowed to to standardize the build process for the entire enterprise, thus ensure that each development team is using the same, consistent process to build code.

Support Rating
Apache
I can't speak to the support, as I've never had issues. Apache Maven "just works," and errors were user errors or local nexus errors. Apache Maven is a great build/dependency management tool. I give it a 9/10 because occasionally the error message don't immediately indicate a solution...but again, those errors were always user or configuration errors, and the Maven documentation is extensive, so I don't find fault in Maven, but in its users.

Ant, Maven's opposing framework, is often a point of comparison. Although Ant does not require formal conventions, it is procedural in the sense that you must tell Ant exactly what to do and when. It also lacks a lifecycle, along with goal definition and dependencies. Maven, on the other hand, requires less work as it knows exactly where your source code is as long as the pom.xml file is generated.

Return on Investment
Apache
  • Apache Maven is an open source product from the Apache Software Foundation. Being free to use without any licensing constraints, we've been very happy with this product thus far.
  • The software build and packaging times for our applications have improved greatly since our use of this tool.
